Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I posted a question about mocking static methods, which was closed as 'unproductive'. I'm not sure why (I'll try to improve it) but I'd like to see if anyone answered it before it was closed. Is this possible?

If you're talking about this question:… , there were no answers on it when it was closed. Answers don't do away on closing, as you can see in this other closed question of yours:… – Brad Larson Nov 21 '12 at 19:44

If there were any answers on it before it closed, you would still see them.

Closing a question does not delete or hide the answers, it simply prevents anyone from answering the question after the close.
